    "Preparing you and your kitchen with tools, tips, skills and encouragement."
    Show 1 - Milling at home is not as difficult as it may sound. For the most healthy, cost effective and best tasting recipes, the freshest whole grain flour is a 'must have'. Hear why I got started milling at home. Gluten sensitivity diagnosis and more…
    Show 2 - Is home milling really more healthy and better on the budget? As a 'cheap health nut' I've done the math and the research and the answer is YES.
    Show 3 - GMO, trans-fats, palm oil…what? Store-bought may be accessible, but is it healthy for our bodies? Can we believe the labels? How easy ARE some of those things to make at home? How convenient is it? You can do it! I'm here to help!

    Why Mill Whole Wheat & Grains at home?

    in Family

    Tonight on ENCOURAGEMENT IN THE KITCHEN with Donna Miller - We are going to discuss the reasons (there are many) for milling whole grains at home.
    From health to budget the reasons for home milling are often over looked by most people because they feel it will be time consuming or costly. Neither of those assumptions are correct. This show will help you dispel those thoughts.
    Pop a question in the chat room or on our Facebook Page if you have specific questions about this topic.
